Interesting topic-
In SF various human subspecies often evolve under extreme environments, or through genetic manipulation, but it's harder to find stories with different human species that couldn't interbreed.

A couple interesting subspecies include the Quaddies from Bujold's Vorskogian Saga series- deliberately created for zero-G, with four arms and no legs. Now 'obsolete' with the invention of artificial gravity. Also the human variants from Niven's Known Space series - 'We Made Itians', Jinxians, etc.

I found this article by Larry Niven talking about the evolutionary themes in his books. It's fascinating to see the whole sweep from the Slavers and their food yeast, to the Pak, and the Puppeteers project to secretly influence human evolution.
